Gigimo is an on line sex shop in China that offers everything from vibrators to “portable urinals for 30 bucks on its website (gigimo.com). The website describes the product as a “soluble and expandable” pouch that’s placed in the vagina. A small plastic insert adheres to the sides of a woman’s cervix. During sex, the pouch is punctured, releasing a red liquid. It only takes about 20 minutes after the last time you had sex to become a “virgin” again.
Nowadays, we experience a lot of sham. Even virginity can be forged. Every year, thousands of Chinese women pay for an operation to restore their hymens shortly before their wedding so that husbands can see blood on the sheets on their honeymoon night.
The product has been getting some press, after conservative Egyptian politicians said they want the product banned. They’re concerned that brides might use the product to fake their virginity, according to a report by the Associated Press.
This isn’t the first time that a Chinese company has been implicated in selling faulty or knock-off condoms. They’ve been causing a lot of problems in global public health officials for more than a decade.
